About me
I’m a British translator and interpreter with a BA in Language (French) and Linguistics, a native English speaker and fluent Spanish speaker. I returned to the UK in 2011 after being resident in Nicaragua for 17 years where I worked as a translator and interpreter during the last six years, mostly for international and local development organisations and envío, a Central American journal of political analysis and information. I am used to working to tight deadlines while delivering quality translations and have an eye for detail. I work mostly in Microsoft Office Word and Wordfast and prefer to be contacted by phone or email.

I am an accredited member of the Institute of Translators and Interpreters (MITI).
